Designed in London to complement the Studio Collection Jackets and Jeans for women, the Hadleigh is a classically styled short-cuff riding glove made from 0.8 mm cowhide leather.
Unlike traditional waterproof liners, which are sandwiched between the glove’s outer shell and inner lining, the Hadleigh features an OutDry membrane that is bonded directly to the leather exterior. As a result the gloves do not look or feel any thicker than most summer motorcycle gloves.
This innovative technology prevents water building up between the outer layer and the waterproof liner used in most gloves, and it also seals the stitching and joins. OutDry is highly breathable – it allows perspiration to push through the glove with ease – making riding in hot conditions more bearable.
On the palms, low profile Scaphoid protectors shield the vulnerable carpal bones in the event of a fall and there is a soft gel knuckle guard too.
Nubuck palm overlay aids grip on the handlebars, which is useful in damp conditions.
The stretch leather cuff with YKK zip closure give a comfortable and snug fit, while the Hadleigh’s short cuff design allows it to sit neatly under the sleeve of a riding jacket.
